Cosme Real

Cosme R. Real went peacefully to be with our Lord on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. He was born to Cosme and Josepha Real of Sonora, Arizona.

Cosme retired from Kennecott as a blasting supervisor after 38 years and retired again from the Superior Water Treatment Plant after 13 years.

He grew up and went to school in Sonora, Arizona. In his earlier years, he was on the Ray-Sonora Tiger Baseball Team, which was one of the first Hispanic teams in the area. His fondest memories were his horses and helping his father as a local supplier in the small town of Sonora.

Cosme and his wife were business owners of the El Charro in downtown Sonora in the late 1950s. Cosme relocated his family to Superior in 1959 and later helped establish the Sonorense Club. He became the first president of the club where he and Elsa were active members for many years.

His greatest pleasures were his family and grandchildren. He enjoyed their company and the special gatherings throughout the years.

Cosme is survived by his wife, Elsa Real; children, Veronica Heron (Richard), Danny Real (Linda), Robert Real (Margie), Michael Real (Laura) and David Real (Priscilla); 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Superior with the viewing at 9:30 a.m., Rosary at 10 a.m. and the Funeral Mass celebrated at 11 a.m. Interment will follow at Fairview Cemetery in Superior.

Arrangements were made by Superior Funeral Home.
